Forecast

The Wolf (1/1), Electron Bleu (11/4), Maid In Manhattan (5/1), Uncle Jonty (7/1), Blossoming Forth (8/1), Mr Katanga (8/1), Scottish Accent (100/1)

Verdict
With Maid In Manhattan flopping at Kelso yesterday (refused) and Uncle Jonty being a fortunate winner on his rules/hurdles debut, this prize looks likely be headed south to either Olly Murphy, Tim Vaughan or Harry Whittington. The market should offer an indicative guide as to the chances of the Brooks-owned newcomer Mr Katanga. Meanwhile, both ELECTRON BLEU (Cheltenham) and The Wolf (Newbury) have solid handicap form in the book. Fresh from wind surgery and in receipt of weight (12lb if factoring in the 5lb claim of Charlie Price) a narrow preference is for Tim Vaughan's charge.
  1. Electron Bleu
  2. The Wolf
  3. Mr Katanga
